CNN Has Always Exposed the Diamond Industry. Really.

Warner Brothers is distributing the new film Blood Diamonds, starring DiCaprio and others. The film opened this past weekend to pretty crummy reviews and lackluster revenues.

And hey, what's the top story on CNN.com right now?

CNN is owned by Time Warner, which also owns Warner Brothers. You make your own call about whether this is ethical. The story mentions the movie a few paragraphs down (which the ownership disclaimer). The top of the page includes:
More on CNN TV: Correspondent Jeff Koinange examines Africa's diamond mines and the men and boys who work in them. Tune in to "AC 360°," tonight at 10 ET.
Media literacy is still very important.
